"Thinking about the roots of narcissism through the therapy of a latency boy"

presented by Philippa Boulter

This meeting is not open to the public.

This paper describes the therapy of a latency boy who showed evidence of an early narcissistic state. The paper looks at how the boy would turn to himself and his own resources when he made contact with the therapist and what she was saying. The paper explores the struggle for this boy in allowing there to be a dyad and tries to understand why the idea of a dyad was such a difficult concept for him to grasp.
